How To Make halloween cinnamon twists

  • 1
    Dissolve yeast in warm water in a large bowl.
  • 2
    In a saucepan, combine the milk, sugar, salt, cinnamon and butter. (Cut the butter into small pieces for easier melting.) Heat to 110F or lukewarm, but not too hot for the yeast mixture.
  • 3
    Add milk mixture with the eggs and 2 cups of flour to the dissolved yeast. Beat until smooth. Beat in remaining flour. The dough will be soft and sticky.
  • 4
    Let rise for about 1 hour, stir down.
  • 5
    Turn dough out onto a well-floured surface. Roll in flour to coat.
  • 6
    With a rolling pin, gently roll into an 8 x 24-inch rectangle. With a sharp knife cut into 1-inch crosswise strips.
  • 7
    Bring ends of two strips together and twist strands loosely. Repeat with remaining strips.
  • 8
    Let rise on floured board or pan for 20-30 minutes until almost doubled.
  • 9
    Heat 1-inch oil in a skillet to 350F. Fry on both sides, about 3 minutes total. Drain.
  • 10
    Coat in sugar and spice mixture.
